School Project: Planet Assyria
11-year-old Josh presents a lesson on Assyrian culture..
The task was to choose an indigenous culture and examine its geography, food, clothing and customs. Naturally Josh chose Assyrians, and he interviewed experts in each of these topic areas. We all learned such a lot putting this project together.
Assyrians are famous for having thrown the biggest party ever in history. In 879 BC, the Assyrian King Ashurnasirpal threw a party to open his new palace at Nimrud. He invited 69,574 people to the party.
